Easy Chicken Alfredo

My mom, Helen, sent me this recipe that we recently made for a Sunday dinner. We tripled the recipe to serve six; otherwise, it makes just enough for two.

3 ounces uncooked fettuccine
1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese
3 tablespoons evaporated milk
1 tablespoon butter-flavored sprinkles (I used real butter)
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
3/4 cup cubed cooked chicken breast
2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
1 tablespoon sliced ripe olives

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small food processor, combine the cottage cheese, milk, butter sprinkles and garlic; cover and process until smooth.

Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Stir in the Parmesan cheese, parsley and pepper. Add the chicken, tomatoes and olives. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Drain fettuccine; serve with chicken mixture. Yield 2 servings

3/4 cup pasta with 2/3 cup chicken mixture = 343 cal

That's a surprisingly low calorie count - of course the real test is stopping after one helping!
Looks yummy - thanks mom Helen!
